I recently visited the Museum of London and the V&A to scout out beautiful dresses! It was nice to be able to draw a costume from life, and not just a book, as it was easier for me to see how the dress fitted together and gave me a much more realistic feel of the form and shape. I also took lots of notes about the period, about things that effected the way people dressed, and the kinds of luxuries women from London could afford. It was tres interesting.
With my research I am planning to make an 18th Century dress-up game! Eeeeeee! :D
All the best,
